Ms. Katrina Perry


    Greetings Lancer Community!!

    I am excited to serve as the Principal of Laurel Park Middle School.  This year marks my seventeenth year within Henry County Public Schools. Before coming to serve the Lancer community, I served as assistant principal in our feeder high school, Magna Vista High School,  for 5 years.  I also spent over a decade supporting students at Fieldale Collinsville Middle School and Bassett High School as a history teacher. Having served as a teacher and administrator to various school programs and as a school building administrator to this community; I am encouraged by the dedication to quality instruction as well as a commitment to forge strong relationships with all students by the Lancer staff to ensure the finest educational experience for our students.

    My formal training to become an educator began at the illustrious North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, where I earned a Bachelors of Arts in History.  While teaching, I completed my Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership and obtained my certification as a PreK-12 Administrator.  In addition, as a lifelong learner, I actively participate in professional development courses and attend professional conferences, as I believe that as a leader; it is vitally important for me to be a leader of learners for my students and staff.

    As we begin this year, our focus will still be to ensure that:

    every child, every day is finding a way to feel connected,

    every child, every day is being challenged by new learning experiences,

    and every child, every day knows they have a champion they can turn to    

    On behalf of the faculty, staff and administration, I want to personally thank you in advance for your support. It is our mission to collaborate with parents and the community to provide each student with an individualized, well-rounded education within a nurturing, safe, and creative environment that inspires each child to reach his or her full potential.   If you are able to contribute your time and/or resources to support our students, please do not hesitate to contact the school. 

    Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. ...........Nelson Mandela
